Meanwhile place 4 quart canning jars and lids (either canning lids or plastic canning jar lids) into a pot and an little water and boil for 10 minutes, remove and just let them sit in the hot water until ready to use.
If we desire a lovely vanilla yogurt we add in 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 Tbl of vanilla during the cooling down process. but the plain yogurt is delicious plain with fruit or with honey drizzled on it.
My first batch was quite runny but I tried to just heat it to 130 degrees, it was still very good and great as a smoothie but not like a nice creamy yogurt.
Be sure to check out Lady Modesty's Home Made Yogurt HERE where you can make creamy yogurt in your crockpot!
I also want to give credit to the Frugal Girl who also gave me some inspiration to make homemade yogurt.
